Drop-Off Pick-Up Procedure

**Update 5/11/2020**
Dear CACS Families,
Congratulations on completing your 8th week of instruction during the mandated school closure! For some, the time may seem to have flown by while for others it may seem never ending as students continue to complete assignments from home. Whichever rings true for your family, this letter provides some information to help guide and light your journey as we move into the final few weeks of the school year.
Assignments
        The last day for Facebook Live Sessions will be Thursday, May 21. Students are urged to work diligently to complete all final assignments listed on the TIPS pages and when needed, get caught up on any incomplete work.  Incomplete assignments are very detrimental to a student’s overall grade. If a student has fallen behind in submitting assignments, please take time this week to get up to date. Do not hesitate to contact staff with questions/concerns or for assistance.  The next two weeks will go by very quickly!
Each teacher will set a final date for submitting assignments. These dates will be listed on the teachers’ TIPS pages. Assignment due dates will be set to provide ample opportunity for correcting and tabulation of 4th Quarter Grades and final course averages.
WPA K-12 Scholarship
REMINDER: Scholarship application information is listed on the school website. Applications must be submitted by June 1.
Book Return/Pick-up Items
Drop off of all books/materials that need to be returned to the school will take place on Wednesday, May 27 & Thursday, May 28. This will be a drive by drop off / pickup process with no one entering the building.  Books/materials will be dropped off into designated areas and end of year certificates and any personal student items still remaining within the school will be bagged and available for pickup. More specific information on items to be returned, assigned day, time frames, and process instructions will be posted on the website and school Facebook page the week of May 18.
REPORT CARDS WILL BE MAILED OUT the first week of June.
Looking Ahead
BOOK Payments of $200 per student for 2020-2021 are due by June 12.
 FACTS Tuition Management Program: To provide more efficiency and ease for families, CACS will be implementing a tuition management program for the 2020-2021 school year. Keep watch for information on signing up for this program to be posted soon on the school website and Facebook page.
Reminder: Revised CACS Dress Code will be in effect for the 2020-2021 school year.  The first day of school is AUGUST 24.
 We extend our sincere thanks for your commitment and continued efforts in working with staff to ensure students successfully complete this school year and are equipped to move forward into the next. We trust this finds your family well. As our county moves into the Yellow Phase within the Covid-19 re-opening plan, please continue to follow the social distancing, small gathering, and mask requirements. Individual decisions will continue to play a large role in both personal well-being and any progress towards progressing into the Green Phase.
Blessings, CACS Administration
